Served in a snifter glass from a 22oz bottle.

Appearance: Thin black bodied motor oil color with a descent head, tan..maybe one finger's length. Drops to nada after one sip. No lacing but the brew still look promising.

Smell: Coffee scent with a touch of sugar note, comes off light.

Taste: Sweet tart feel, lightly tangy but heavy molasses mixed with a cup of coffee. Has an obvious vanilla extract feel which might rub off on you in a good way or a bad way depending how you are feeling about the brew. The brew's only bitterness are an straight lighter dark chocolate and coffee bean.

Mouth: Medium carbonation with average stickiness to the brew, slightly thin bodied.

Overall: I lust for Imperial Stouts, easily my number two beer next to IIPAs and this was is uniquely good but has room for improvement. A slight tweaking couldn't hurt but be patient the first tasting don't let it overwhelm you...the fruits make you think of a chocolate covered strawberry. Little funky at first but to each their own, Salud!

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cough syrup and cherry syrup with light roasted notes is mildly enjoyable. Taste is a mix of cough syrup with cherry flavored syrup, quite a bit of residual sugar notes with some lactose. Body is full with creamy texture and good carbonation. Not a big fan of the cherry flavour in this beer.
